Legal Education and Uniform Laws Group

Who We Are

This group differs from other RPTE groups in that it surveys activities and information across the entire spectrum of property topics, rather than focusing on specific substantive areas. The group consists of the Legal Education and Uniform Laws committees. One of the group’s primary activities is Professors’ Corner, a free monthly webinar (on the second Wednesday of every month) which features a panel of law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate or trust and estate practitioners and scholars.

Professors' Corner: Perspectives on Deficiency Judgments

January 14, 2015
As the real estate market recovers from the Great Recession, the specter of deficiency liability hangs over many borrowers. States have taken different approaches to deficiency liability, from California's near-total ban on deficiency judgments to states in which no deficiency protection (not even "fair value" protection) exists. Is there an "ideal" approach to the question of deficiency liability? Do borrowers really understand the risks and consequences associated with such liability and, if not, what are the policy implications of borrower misunderstanding?
